Ninety disc golfers came to play a PDGA-certified event Feb. 9 in Channahon to raise funds for MorningStar Mission Ministries.
The tournament, sponsored by J-Town Disc Golf Club, raised more than $8,000 that will provide more than 3,900 meals and care to those experiencing homelessness. Hall of Famer Gary Lewis joined the event with logo T-shirt and sweatshirts.
J-Town Disc Golf Club was started in the summer of 2009.
The day of the event was brisk with an occasional breeze that made it feel even colder. With the ice on the course it certainly was fitting for an event called the “Ice Bowl.”
PDGA World Champion Frank Grimes was instrumental in starting the partnership with MorningStar Mission for the Ice Bowl. This year the Ice Bowl drew disc golfers as far as Galveston, Texas.
Board members are Ray Hill, Frank Grimes, Jason Poole, Dean Bingham and Dave Kociuba.
